A pond has been given a new lease of life at Crick Primary School.
The pond on the school site had become overgrown and in need of regeneration.
The work was carried out over half term from a wildlife expert Jules Howard to help support a breeding colony of the endangered great crested newts.
The first stage of the work was finished last week with the project set to be fully completed in the spring with the addition of more plant life and solar panels.
Headteacher Julie Neill said: “The area will hopefully help us gain our Eco-schools green flag award for biodiversity and enhance outdoor learning throughout the curriculum. Our pupils are already looking forward to adding pond-dipping to their list of activities.”
Mr Howard said: “Ponds are really special places, because they offer children chances to see up-close some really bizarre and memorable wildlife.
It has been a pleasure working with the school - whose staff have been so quick to understand the value that ponds offer, and the benefits that they bring for local wildlife.”
